A look into the season:
We want to emphasize that this season is TWO sports in one. Basketball Cheerleading and Game Day Competition team. Athletes should be dedicated to take on this opportunity and give it their all while maintaining good standing in academics. We will practice primarily Monday – Thursday, at least two hours a day, and Saturday mornings at the beginning of the season. When basketball games start, we schedule basketball-focused practices as needed, as there will be approximately 1-2 games a week. We then shift more to competition choreography and prep while maintaining knowledge of basketball content. This means we practice every Saturday morning still and continue to schedule practices around games during the week.
This is just a tentative look into how seasons have been structured in the past to understand the time commitment and expectations. Please contact Coach Olson if you have any questions!
